Located in the Balkans, Croatia is a small & impressive country that has just recently become a popular mediterranean destination. The country features turquoise water and idyllic beaches, natural wonders, rich history and tasteful food and wine. 

Why Visit

ISLANDS & BEACHES: Croatia is characterized by its idyllic islands with beautiful beaches, contrasted with its legendary cliffs and historic cities in the background. 

FOOD & WINE: Croatia has become a foodie paradise thanks to its fresh, tasteful and unique food and its high quality wine, that is in my opinion underrated. The country has 64 distinct grape types and more than 800 wineries.

NATURAL WONDERS: The country is home to many National Parks (like Krka and Plitvice Lakes National Park), famous for their turquoise lakes and spectacular waterfalls, gorgeous canyons and diverse flora and fauna.

RICH HISTORY Croatia has an extensive ancient heritage, that dates back to the Paleolithic Age. The region was further settled by Illyrians and Liburnians, Greeks and Romans, Avars and Croats. Ruins of these periods can still be found through the country.

Bucket list



What to expect

LANGUAGE: Croatian is the official language, however, the majority of croatians are multilingual and english is spoken by at least 80% of croatians (it varies a little from city to city). 

ELECTRICITY: In Croatia the standard voltage is 230 V and the frequency is 50 Hz. That’s the standard voltage in the UK, Europe, Australia and most of Asia and Africa; If you are traveling from the US you will need an adaptor.

CURRENCY: The Croatian kuna is the official currency. 1 USD equals 1.03 Croatian kunas. Croatia is part of the European Union, and Euros are accepted in some restaurants, transportation and accommodations. You can still exchange any other currency in any bank or withdraw the money directly from the ATM. Credit cards are widely accepted as well, although europeans prefer cash and it is recommended to always carry cash in your wallet.

SAFETY: Croatia is one of the safest countries in the world with a very low violent crime rate. As in every other destination, you are encouraged to take security precautions to avoid any possible problems.

PASSPORT: Nationals of the following countries do not need a visa to enter Croatia for a maximum period of 90 days in any 180-day period:

Albania, Andorra, Antigua and Barbuda, Argentina, Australia, Bahamas, Barbados, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Brazil, Brunei, Canada, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Dominica, El Salvador, Georgia, Grenada, Guatemala, Holy See, Honduras, Hong Kong, Israel, Japan, Kiribati, Macao, Macedonia, Malaysia, Marshall Islands, Mauritius, Mexico, Micronesia, Moldova, Monaco, Montenegro, New Zealand, Nicaragua, Palau, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, Saint Kitts and Nevis, Saint Lucia, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, Samoa, San Marino, Serbia, Seychelles, Singapore, Solomon Islands, South Korea, Taiwan, Timor-Leste, Tonga, Trinidad and Tobago, Tuvalu, Ukraine, United Arab Emirates, USA, Uruguay and Vanuatu. 

Citizens from all other countries (except, of course, european citizens) need to request a visa in advance through the embassy.

How to get around

By plane: Croatia is very small and only has 6 different airports. You can drive across the country in 2-3 hours while enjoying the views. It wouldn’t really make sense to flight.

By Car: Renting a car in Croatia would be the best way to get around. Is easy, convenient, and very enjoyable. Roads are in good condition. 

By Bus: Public transportation is the best option for on-budget travelers, although is not the most convenient way. Bus is the most used form of public transport in Croatia, the country has an extensive network of long distance, intercity and international buses.

By Train: Croatia’s rail network connects all major Croatian cities, except Dubrovnik. However, the rail network is not very extensive and would only take you to the main cities. 

By Boat: It is highly recommended to take a ferry or hire a yacht (and honestly, the only way) to reach the croatian islands from the coastal centres. The croatian islands are beautiful and it is worth exploring them.
